Agreed for sure - I was commenting more on what seemed a bit expectant but what do I know, comment removed!

as promised, here details about purple.

We are going to sell two different products:

PURPLE M-5
Purple_M-5_009_small.jpg
Full price: 99 eur
This will be a Core8 release (as you see, there are no buttons! it loads instantly, which is a revolution in workflow for nebula-related things).

PURPLE P-1
Purple_P-1_003_small.jpg
Full price: 119
There will be two different releases: a Core8 and a Core8 at higher CPU load. Basically we'll take in account also a more accurate harmonic distortion at different gain levels and settings, but it will require an higher CPU hit. Normally we would not use this technique, but for EXPENSIVE mixing device such this one, where you are looking for the best possible resolution we are going to create an overkill version.
Everything is possible now BECAUSE Core8. Even implementing a button it would take ages to load normally in nebula, especially the low band.
So there will be two different, P-1 and P-1 ULTIMATE.

Please note, prices are ALREADY LOW, considering the tech involved and the beauty of those devices, we are not emulating the first thing you find in a shop.



NOW. We'll have the best user manual EVER. Something impressive. But we want to make this thing appealing on the price side.

Our idea is to BUNDLE those two products. If you buy them bundled the first one, P-1 will be discounted by 20%
So the full price will be 194 and not 218.
During the pre-order period it will be discounted (the usual 10%), so it will be around 174 eur.

Now, as promised, we decided to provide a coupon to both all eqp1 and white customers, a BIG coupon -> 20%

So at the end of the day you can grab those EXPENSIVE gems at just 139 eur.
GUYS. 139. Acqua Core8, and THOSE devices. We are trying to do OUR BEST, really.


A note about the release date: we are ready for releasing M-5, but I asked francesco to prepare also a preview for P-1. This week we are a bit busy cause the imminent release of both Scarlet3 and Pink updates, so the pre-order could start around the end of the week. We are working HARD.

super-cool with a P-1 overkill version Giancarlo, i like it :)

this price range which i must say is very nicely priced always makes me very trigger-happy to buy
and im sure the sound will be incredible

i will go for the P-1 first as this is the one i need the most right now

Appreciate the hard work as always

Cheers

174 for the presale bundle? Speaking as a broke hobbyist/enthusiast in my 20's, you guys are awesome! I thought I'd have to settle for only buying the P1.

Now I'll wait patiently for the demo, which I'm sure will make me wonder how I ever mixed without it. I almost wish you'd come out with something useless to me so I could focus on upgrading my PC lol

bring on 'The OverKill' :shock:

This is a really great idea ... particularly those involved in Mastering.

Consider me enticed, Giancarlo. Thank you for being so interactive, open and engaging with your customers. There are several reasons why I choose to support Acustica's continued development by purchasing your products, and this is a big one. My hard earned money does not go to many software developers at all. Acustica is the exception.

This bundle looks incredible! Great work on the GUIs!

So estimated date for pre-sale is end of week - what about potential release date? Getting a plan together to add sweet tube pultecs to my growing ACQUA arsenal...


Thanks G!

I' really eager to compare it to TimP Dualtech which is magical... G said the units are special, and noone did the mid-band one yet.

So , if i got it right ; being an owner of "Pt1" and "White" as well , i'd be able to get both units for 139 Euros in pre sale ?

PS: a bit out of topic ; i'm thinking abt replacing my CD/DVD unit by a HardDrive , no more room ! (using a good USB burner instead) Will i have to Re Aut my Nebula/Acqua plugins ?

Win7 x64 . Thanks!

Michael from CDS made a mid Ptq Acqua , i tried the free one band but did not like it much , muddy.

Besides , All other Michael's stuffZ are stellar ( he worked on Pt1 with AA )
